The first night on the Donna Wood was filled with the excitement of what was to come!

Earlier in the day at 10:00 am, we boarded an Air Greenland flight in Reykjavik bound for Constable Point, Greenland. Constable Point Greenland is on the east coast of Greenland near Scoresby Sound. It’s an airstrip with a dirt runway and no flushing toilet!

While at the airport waiting for our luggage(which came in a cart), we met a small group of Geologists from Cambridge University that were heading up to Germania for a month looking for shells embedded in the rocks! In our brief discussion, we found out that the rocks in Greenland are about 60 million years old. The rocks in Iceland are only 4-5 million years old. The two landscapes are very different.

After a 10 minute walk across the dirt runway to the zodiacs, we were ferried to the Donna Wood to find our rooms for the next week! Shortly after we started out on our journey through Scoresby Sound.

As we were heading out, we got to an area of the bay in the sound that allowed us to see the sun on the horizon! It was exciting to have clear skies so we could see the sun head for the horizon and then wait for it to go below the horizon, only to see it never make it!

The sun got this low and then started to come back up!

I love the glow of the summer Arctic light over the sound as seen in this image!

Thanks to LM and Brian for finding the Ice Cave Apple ad in London! LM found it at the Monument Station(I believe).
Brian found it in the Waterloo Station.
Brian was kind enough to capture a photo showing the masses inside Waterloo Station
I'm humbled thinking of how many people have seen my photo!

One of my FB friends has a friend that visited Chengdu, China and was able to find my #shotoniphone Billboard in Chengdu City Center! I was unaware that Chengdu was a city of 14million people, with 10million in the Urban center! Here's some shots of the Ice Cave billboard there!

Still have locations to find in China, if anyone has any contacts there I'd love to get them the locations.

So my image seen on the billboard on top of this building in Sinchon Seoul, South Korea is also no 25 other billboards around the world including 8 in Mainland China. I don't have many contacts in China and would like to get a photo of each billboard.. If you have any contacts in China, please pass this on! The billboards in China are located here: CN - Chengdu - Chun XI Building CN - Chongqing - Jin Cheng Plaza CN - Nanjing - Xin Jie Kou Tian Sh...

Crazy as it sounds, I didn’t submit my photo to Apple for inclusion in their campaign.
I took a picture on my iPhone 6S in January 2016 and posted it to my Instagram(http://www.instagram.com/dougsandquist) account and added a few hashtags.
Two months later I get a mysterious email inquiring about one of my photos. I was then sent a Non-Disclosure Agreement(NDA) from Apple Inc. and the advertising agency.
Three months later I was notified that my image is in the 2016 “Colors” Shot on iPhone campaign and used around the world!

There is more to this story, though. In December 2015, I was in an Apple Store playing around with the iPad Pro with my son, and I noticed a large Shot on iPhone display in the store and wondered how Apple had found the photographer for the ad. A few web searches later I discovered that Apple and it’s Ad Agency scoured social media sites for iPhone photos.

Once I found out it was possible, I thought, why not me?

The rest is history!

It appears that the campaign is coming to a close, but there are still images coming in! If you happen to see the ad anywhere in the world snap a pic and send it on it! This post includes images from Philadelphia, NYC and many from Paris!

The latest images from around the world of the Ice Cave #shotoniphone   #appleworldgallery  are from Mexico City, Guadalajara, NYC and Chengdu, China! The ad is also in the Comic Con edition of Entertainment Weekly(I believe it's California Distribution only)..

Still looking for images from Monterrey, Mexico, Moscow/St. Petersburg, Russia and multiple sites in China... If anyone has friends in those locations please pass this on! Thanks! I've almost given up locating the billboard in the Unalan area of Istanbul! :( #iphone6S

Update! So it appears that my Ice Cave image is also in Moscow and St. Petersburg Russia... Sadly I don't have many clues as to where but my guess its a major downtown location.. So if anyone has any friends in Russia, I'd love to get a pic from there!
Also I was sent two images from Downtown Minneapolis. My billboard is on top of First Avenue the club that Prince got his start!
Thanks to +Dave Everts for getting this image from a friend(It's the shot from off the side) and my fellow apprentices in the +The Arcanum +Jamie Christenson captured this incredible image from the front!
